7z x data.7z.001

7z like that will find the others automatically (002 003 and so on)

  • Can you check the size of the files please? It sounds like it wasn't completed right the creating of the zip files.

  • Can you give it a try with: 7zr x data.7z.001 With the 'r' with 7z. Found this option in a few sites but not sure if that will work.

I continued getting an "Unknown format" error until doing the following:

7z e file.7z.001 -tsplit

    This worked for me, thank you! Option x supports full path. Option e for only names (as in your example). Option t is for testing.

    For SEO’s sake : I got Open ERROR: Can not open the file as [7z] archive ERRORS: Unexpected end of archive Can't open as archive: 1 without -tsplit, worked like a charm with -tsplit. Feb 9 at 8:58
